Four weeks until Christmas

(2 ratings)
Christmas Turkey
With four weeks to go, it's time to order that turkey. You can even make some of the food ahead and freeze it.

  • Time-saver: Order the turkey early or buy a frozen one - do it early or you could end up with a bird that's too big or too small. Try online supermarket comparison site www.mysupermarket.co.uk or your local butcher.


  • Check what size you need with our turkey size guide below


  • Time-saver: Mince pies are also easy to prepare early. Either make, freeze and cook from frozen - or cook, freeze and reheat from frozen.



If you're ordering a large turkey, measure your oven first to make sure it'll fit. You don't want to get a nasty surprise on Christmas morning!
